What’s a “Next Generation Beekeeper”? “Next Gen” is defined as, “The step forward that perpetually propels us into our impending destiny.” We are the next generation in our family of beekeepers, we are the drivers of the next stage of development in the products, services, expertise, and knowledge our industry provides. This beekeeper is a commercial or small scale beekeeper, or works as an educator or researcher. They are passionate about bees, and want to be involved in future beekeeping innovation, research, policy, technology, advocacy, or community leadership.
This evening breakout session will feature free beer, music, great networking opportunities, and an organized, interactive group session. The session is designed to develop a few ideas for addressing the issues new beekeepers face, as we join this industry. You tell us what that needs to be done, we’ll listen and help to develop a positive action plan to propel our industry forward.
